Music & Arts Community Center
13411 Shire Ln, Fort Myers
Get your tickets!
Once again we are turning the MACC into a hopping New York City Jazz Club with another Jazz Jam!
What happens when you invite 20 area musicians, young and old, some who have never even heard each
other’s names before to play music together spontaneously? An evening of unexpected turns and musical
excitement that can’t be repeated. Throughout the night different combinations of musicians will be invited
onto the stage to play Jazz standards together to the delight of our audience. We’re looking forward to
presenting another amazing night of improvisation, spontaneity, and swing!
